Free speech moderated by the public safety and common good.

You can't yell "Fire!" in a crowded theater, etc...

You can if there's a fire.

Well... yeah.

But what emergency would a DDoS attack signify?

I get your point and agree -- generally none (unless they hit a site upon which people have come to rely on).

But it DOES cause economic damage and/or inconvenience to the victim and/or people trying to access that asset.

So can a protest march protected under free speech. Economic damage and inconvenience alone do not inhibit the exercise of free speech.

It's not protected "speech," it's vandalism.

To me, it's the same as PETA breaking into labs or splashing paint on fur-wearers.
